Avis sur l’album

A little under a year before the Ritchie Family's "Best Disco in Town" stormed the nightlife, they debuted their lush disco style on 1975's Brazil. Replete with all those wonderful sonic Sigma Studio keynotes, which include lush strings and chukka chukka guitar and are underpinned at times by minute moments of scything rock & roll, the band delivered, if not some of the best, then certainly some of the earliest disco in town. While the title track, its disco rhythm twined with strings and flute, soared to number 11 on the pop charts, it was followed to number 84 by the remarkably shrill and often mistitled "Dance With Me" — a number with vocals that don't sound like they're part of the same song, let alone in the right key.

Overlook this costuming catastrophe, however, and the album has a subtle flamboyance that is often just as pleasing.
